From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     GAT Extended?  Based on IT.
     [Sammet 1969, p. 139].

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A low-level digital logic component.  Gates
     perform Boolean functions (e.g. AND, NOT), store
     bits of data (e.g. a flip-flop), and connect and
     disconnect various parts of the overall circuit to control the
     flow of data ({tri-state buffer).
     In a CPU, the term applies particularly to the buffers that
     route data between the various functional units.  Each gate
     allows data to flow from one unit to another or enables data
     from one output onto a certain bus.

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     (1.) Of cities, as of Jerusalem (Jer. 37:13; Neh. 1:3; 2:3;
     3:3), of Sodom (Gen. 19:1), of Gaza (Judg. 16:3).
       (2.) Of royal palaces (Neh. 2:8).
       (3.) Of the temple of Solomon (1 Kings 6:34, 35; 2 Kings
     18:16); of the holy place (1 Kings 6:31, 32; Ezek. 41:23, 24);
     of the outer courts of the temple, the beautiful gate (Acts
       (4.) Tombs (Matt. 27:60).
       (5.) Prisons (Acts 12:10; 16:27).
       (6.) Caverns (1 Kings 19:13).
       (7.) Camps (Ex. 32:26, 27; Heb. 13:12).
       The materials of which gates were made were,
       (1.) Iron and brass (Ps. 107:16; Isa. 45:2; Acts 12:10).
       (2.) Stones and pearls (Isa. 54:12; Rev. 21:21).
       (3.) Wood (Judg. 16:3) probably.
       At the gates of cities courts of justice were frequently held,
     and hence "judges of the gate" are spoken of (Deut. 16:18; 17:8;
     21:19; 25:6, 7, etc.). At the gates prophets also frequently
     delivered their messages (Prov. 1:21; 8:3; Isa. 29:21; Jer.
     17:19, 20; 26:10). Criminals were punished without the gates (1
     Kings 21:13; Acts 7:59). By the "gates of righteousness" we are
     probably to understand those of the temple (Ps. 118:19). "The
     gates of hell" (R.V., "gates of Hades") Matt. 16:18, are
     generally interpreted as meaning the power of Satan, but
     probably they may mean the power of death, denoting that the
     Church of Christ shall never die.
